Forum: etree Subject: Taping Policy vs. Posting Policy question

Before I upload anything that might get rejected, I wanted to pose a question. I'm trying to share some Death Cab for Cutie recordings that I've made over the years, and the "policy" section reads that they no longer allow SBD recordings. I've been making SBD and AUD tapes of them for some time and have never had a band problem with SBD hookups, just a venue problem here or there. Regardless, they did allow SBD recordings in the past and all of my sources are made with band permission.

So if I post my SBD sourced recordings are they going to show up in the archive, or will they get rejected due to "band" policy? I noticed there is at least one SBD sourced show up there already (actually a recording I made, just not that I submitted).

Thanks
Andy

As far as what is taped, we cannot control that. If DCFC's policy is "no sbd's" but they allow them anyway or they surface anyway, I think they should be shared as any of the other recordings. I think since they didn't specifically say "no sbd's" when agreeing to be hosted on archive, you're probably okay to post. Worst case scenario is, you post, they get shared for a while, DCFC has an issue with it and we have to pull it.

I say go for it and thanks for sharing! :)

Ok, based on the responses, I'll just go ahead and upload. I was just thinking that a moderator might not allow them to go public, if it's up to the band or their management, I'm confident it won't be an issue.

Well there are 3 moderators that posted here. Me, Diana, and Tyler and we all seem to be on the same page :). Upload away!

Good question. It can vary a lot between bands about what "no soundboards" really means. In cases where we can't figure it out from context, we'll typically just ask reps for clarification.

In context here, the policy notes we have here (preceding the quote of actual go-ahead from DCFC) look to be informal notes found at a taper site (Bands That Allow Taping). If you do know of a formal posted policy for this particular band, let me know the link and I can updgrade what we have.

Meanwhile, try the upload and if there are any misgivings in the meantime we can "freeze" it at the last import step for further discussion. It's unlikely to be a problem especially since you did get permission in the first place.

(BTW for some bands here there's like a cutoff based on the clear date we know the band stopped allowing SBD patches- moe. is one, maybe?)

If you do know of a formal posted policy

To the best of my knowledge, DCFC does not and prob will not post / announce an official taping policy. those indie kids get signed for a record deal and just want the taping to happen out of their eyesight ;)
